Neenahjah Rae-Kwon Purvis; deserter arrested for murder in Georgia

| March 2, 2018

Neenahjah Rae-Kwon Purvis of Stone Mountain, Georgia shot and killed Maliki Jawuan Holt during a home invasion last week. DeKalb County Sheriff Deputies arrested him the other day for the murder when they discovered that he is also a deserter from the US Navy according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

Purvis, 22, was armed when he entered a motel room in the 4800 block of Memorial Drive, according to arrest warrants. He and Holt shot at each other and Holt was fatally wounded, Williams said.

Though Purvis faces felony murder and first-degree home invasion charges in DeKalb, he will also be held for extradition to federal authorities on the military desertion charge.

Picking up deserters on military warrants can save lives.

    Can SECNAV bring back Keel hauling? or at least flogging?

    This takes the name game to a new level.

  4. AW1Ed says:

    You don’t suppose drugs were involved?


  5. Mason says:

    Claw, what’s the score on that name? Gotta be north of 50 without the military deserter and murderer multipliers.

    • sj says:

      This will blow up Claw’s calculator!

    • Claw says:

      KAK Wheel says Neenahjah Rae-Kwon Purvis – Basic score of 53 without any multipliers.

        I’m going to say it like it is.
        These poor kids have these dumb made-up names.
        Yeah, for God’s sake I wouldn’t name any white kid Cleetus, Cephus, Chester, Lamar, Roscoe, etc. Maybe back when they weren’t associated with Appalachian incest but not in modern times.
        So I’m in court on Friday. A miscreant stole my daughter’s skateboard and hit her on the head with it knocking her to the ground, breaking her glasses and she lost consciousness for a few seconds.
        No, he’s not in a 55 gallon drum buried on my property. Kid was in Juvenile Hall after arrested then on house arrest with ankle bracelet. Then he steals his aunts car.
        Anyway, I’m in court with my daughter so she can give a victim’s impact statement at sentencing.
        The kid’s name? “Xavier Muziq XXXXXX.”
        The self-fulfilling prophecy living up to the lowest expectations.
        Daughter says she wants money for her glasses, forgives the loser and wants them to have family counseling.
        Dad says… “I don’t need no family counseling. It’s not fair to my other 8 kids. It’s stressin us out!!!”
        Deputy DA leans over and says, “Yeah, dad has a long list of felony assaults too.”
        Dad gets pissed because they also took Muziq’s DNA. Because in CA, if you commit a felony, you give up some DNA for your future trips to the court.
        So the court orders family counseling, 5 days of work project (not happy about that unless it was 5 days in North Korea labor camp), 6 months time served (hopefully Big Tiny, Cleetus and Bubba worked him up real nice) restitution to the court, $180 for my daughter’s glasses and 2 restraining orders and the DB cannot ever go to any of the parks my daughter goes to.
        He’s also not allowed to be in any car where the steering column is busted or possess a screwdriver in or near a car.
        Bailiff’s, Deputy Sheriff’s, the Deputy DA and several court officers gave my daughter hugs and the Judge commended her.
        That really pissed off Father Of The Year and the rotten fruit that didn’t fall far from the tree.

          Please allow me to complement you on the raising of your daughter, and the outstanding young lady she seems to be becoming.

          Give her our complements and admiration, please.


    I must say, that is one confusing name

  7. Sparks says:

    Shit stain.

    How on this earth do parents come up with these names???? If they intended for them to stand out, in most cases, like this one, it worked.

    • SgtM says:

      I’ll bet there was no two parent nuclear family involved here. Everyone knows that two parent families are racist.

    • Couver says:

      How old was he before he could spell it?

    • Jay says:

      I’m gonna go out on a limb and say PARENT(singular) came up with that one…..probably at a very young age.

    • MCPO NYC USN Ret. says:

      It is a celebration of their African roots, heritage, values and contribution to society here in the US.

      Dah …

    • Commissioner Wretched says:

      Why on earth would any parent saddle a child with a ridiculous name like that? It’s impossible to pronounce, difficult to spell, has little if any real meaning, and – like as not – was totally made up.

      It reminds me of the question asked on Quora – “What if I name my child Peekaboo?”

      Giving a child a ridiculous name is tantamount to child abuse, considering the crap the kid is going to have to put up with for his entire life because some adult wanted to be funny.

      I know. My real name is not of the “usual” variety.

      • Graybeard says:

        Shoot, anyone with an unusual last name knows what the kids in school do in response.

        My last name was the source of all sorts of hilarity in elementary and middle school.

  8. CM says:

    Purvis? Right….

  9. A Proud Infidel®™ says:

    Are they sure that the guns and the Navy didn’t make him do it?

  10. Stoutguy says:

    TAS needs to have a deserter section. Get help identifying and catching those that deserted.

  11. Ret_25X says:

    Can you give us a quote Neenahjah Rae-Kwon Purvis?

    Sheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeit…ah dindu nuffin

    • HMC Ret says:

      The mind is a terrible thing …

      Remember that SNL skit? Eddie Murphy when he was funny.

      These dudes be dumb, dumb, dumb.

      • AW1Ed says:

        Garret Morris for the win.

        • jonp says:

          In it’s heyday that show was the funniest crap on TV. I remember staying up late on Saturday Night to watch it and seeing the original Blues Brothers sketch do Soul Man. Audience was laughing thinking it was a joke then they started in and the laughter stopped. Excellent stuff

        Stolen valor in Mr Robinson’s neighborhood

        Walk into a Posers room and say “poser bitch”. I’ll wait.

        Did he shit himself? Good! You said it right.

  12. OWB says:

    They should also add felony abuse of the English language. For the mother that saddled him with that horrendous name, that is.

  13. Brown Neck Gaitor says:

    Maybe mom was a fan of the Wu Tang Crew

  14. Atkron says:

    When I was on Shore Duty at a particular East Coast Helo RAG at NAS JAX…one of the guys in our Corrosion Control shop decided he didn’t like Jody banging his estranged wife…so he ventilated him.

    Somehow, Duval County decided to allow the Navy to prosecute the case, and dude is cooling his heels in Leavenworth, for at least the past 23 years. It might have been that Jody was another Sailor.

    Do you think local authorities do that often? Allow UCMJ to mete out Justice (and save the county some money)?

    • AW1Ed says:

      HS-1. AWANEd went to Helo Rescue Swimmer School there a million years ago.

    • AW1Ed says:

      In my experience local constables are mostly happy to let the military authorities handle issues where only military personnel are involved. Bets are off if a civilian is in the mix, though. Could go either way then.

    Thinking our boy may have done a public service killing…

  16. FatCircles0311 says:

    These fucking names.

  17. Just An Old Dog says:

    Looking in my Ol Doggy Crystal Ball I see him getting a Manslaughter Charge at most since there was an exchange of gunfire.
    Shit with a good defense attorney he could even walk on self defense.
    Gun Fire in a hotel room sounds more like a drug deal gone bad. Hopefully they have other charges.
    More than likely the Navy will give him a General Discharge AdSep, Other than Honorable.

  18. Stephen McCartney says:

    “Neenahjah Rae-Kwon” translated into the King’s English is “Lucretius”. Maybe he can catch up on his missed NOL (Navy On Line) requirements while in prison

    CAPT Bones USN (ret)

  19. O-4E says:

    Why does it look like he’s sitting in a barber’s chair in that pic?

  20. jonp says:

    I’ll be surprised if he doesn’t claim he caught the PTSD, identifies as a tranny and gets awarded back pay

  21. QueenGemini says:
